She

SHE

Always the same,
Always different,
Looking into spaces and crevices
Where no one ever looked before,
Finding what she wants,
Finding what she needs,
To ponder, to imagine,
To create a thing uniquely and utterly her own,
That can only be eclipsed by her.


THEY

Mocking, scolding, laughing,
Always gathering in clusters and whispering,
"Why doesn't she ask for more?"
"More-More-More," they repeat,
While they grow old slowly, then quickly.
Wild, wiry strands of silver and white angrily
Pushing out from under extravagant bonnets
Shielded by parasols to hide them from the sun
That hides from them, shinning only on her
When she is alone or in a crowd,
While she continues to search, explore, and
Find what she wants,
Find what she needs,
To push back against THE INVISIBLE
Each anxious dawn to travel beyond WHAT IS,
Always looking, searching, growing---


No need to ask for more.

    Just dropping by Beverly, with a little note to say hello, and a poem just for you, "If we walk in the light We'll soar to new heigh; To us belongs the flight, As our eyes find new sight; The heavens turn to might, As we touch his hem of whit" xxx

    I came back to take another look at this gem, I was right, it makes me wonder about the person who wrote this Bev? Is that you? The sharp cut diamond that Sun bathes and leaves unscathed? Yes it's my Bev, Smiles xxx Stay beautiful girl, xxx

    Dear Sara, Thank you for your excellent critique. And you are right---sometimes we just have to do what we have to do. Thank you friend.

    Beverly, sometimes what we seek can't be given easily... I know this is not the story of beauty and the beast.. But, it reminds me of BELL,,, the way she was in comfort never needing more than she already had, her mind was lost in an enigmatic world..... Searching beyond the heavens and stars... Amazing out of the box SHE....I must say. .. and you are right I am kind fun loving and warm... Until, pull off the edge.. hugs..Linda
